Discussion: ‘Eye on The Western Sahara,’ with Sahrawi Human Rights Defender Aminatou Haidar

November 17, 2008 @ 7:15 pm - 9:00 pm

Ms. Haidar will speak about challenges she has encountered in her work as a human rights defender and address issues raised during the Moroccan truth-seeking experience over the past several years, notably the failures of the Moroccan Equity and Reconciliation Commission (IER) to address the human rights abuses and grievances of victims in the Western Sahara.

In addition to commenting on her activism and the Moroccan IER, Ms. Haidar will also share her thoughts on how redress, truth, and justice are challenged in zones marked by contested national identities, border disputes, and “security” issues.

Refreshments will be served.
